Support The Marple Band

We often get asked during concerts “Is there any way in which we can help the band”. The Marple Band doesn’t have a sponsor that provides regular corporate funding. As such we rely solely on money earned from our performances, fundraising events and kind contributions from friends and supporters of the band.

If you would like to help support the band, we’d love to see you at one of our many concerts and events in Marple and the surrounding area. But you can also support the band in other ways.

All contributions are put to excellent use, supporting all aspects of the band, including new music, maintenance of instruments and assisting with general running costs. Our Spring and Autumn concerts are dedicated to our Supporters who are invited to these April and October events, plus receiving free raffle tickets for these concerts and our Christmas Concert.
